Cool wireless monitor mode using ubuntu feisty 7

im trying to setup my wifi card i got from a compex router/Access Point.

I pulled it out of the router and inserted it into my ubuntu laptop and ran dmesg.

[111899.588000] pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
[111899.588000] pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0

[111967.604000] eth2: New link status: Connected (0001)
here above is the results

ive been googling quite a bit online to compile drivers to use monitor mode.
i also tried to manuelly set the iwconfig eth2 mode monitor
but no luck and from what i understand is that its a problem with the orinio drivers which interface with this card.
I do know this card is capable of monitor mode because thats how the compex router works it goes into monitor mode with this card.

im still lost as to whether i need to downgrade my firmware ? which is what verison?
do i compile orinoco drivers ? I did try to compile but when i apply the patch for monitor mode it errors on compiling.
